Andreas Christensen fouled Sadio Mane in the box which could have been a penalty for Liverpool against Chelsea, but the Senegalese failed to fall down.

According to the report on Daily Mail, Michael Owen claimed that Sadio Mane knew that Mohamed Salah would take the penalty if Liverpool had gotten.

''It was a great touch and he possibly thought he might get a chance at the end of it, but he did something similar a week ago.
''I just wonder, and it might be a little bit of devious thoughts creeping into my head, Mo Salah is the penalty taker in this team, and if he (Mane) thinks he's getting a chance to score he thinks, "well I'm going to score, if I don't stay on my feet, Mo Salah's going to get another penalty."
